Every day, countless women face the challenge of living on less than $2.50. Grameen Foundation works to empower these women to lift themselves out of poverty. We believe that empowered women will save lives, improve their families’ income, and help the poorest countries build stronger economies.
March is Women's History Month.
There's Chanda in India, who for the first time was able to open a savings account. There's Yvonne in Ghana, who was finally able to give birth to a healthy baby because she gained access to health care information on her mobile phone. And there's Alice in Uganda, who now works as a Community Knowledge Worker, using a smartphone to help the farmers in her village get the information they need to make a better living. These are just a few.
This year, you can make a difference by joining "Team Grameen" as we raise funds to bring more of these innovative solutions to poor women around the world.
By taking the Grameen Foundation $2.50 Challenge you'll commit to living on just $2.50 for one entire day. Then, get your friends and family involved by asking them to donate to your cause. The more people, the better! The money you'll raise will change the lives of poor women who face this struggle every day.
If you hate poverty and are looking for a way to make a meaningful difference, this is your chance.
